Sound design, film music and music editing in general exert a primary
function in conveying senses of space and place in audiovisual media.
Strategies for connoting space and place in film sound and music vary with
cinematic practices across history and according to transnational patterns
of negotiation between global and local modes of production. At the same
time audiovisual communication, when rich in local connotations, allows
insights into specific socio-historical contexts and the documentation of
human geographies. This conference aims to bring together scholars
interested in mapping geographies of music and sound practices in
audiovisual media (e.g. film, television, video games, interactive art). We
invite fresh perspectives on film music and sound that are willing to
embrace aspects ranging from individual approaches to space and place to
collective geographies, also considering industrial trends and intermedia
connections. Cultural, ethnographic, historical, analytical, data-driven
and aesthetic approaches are welcome, as well as research on industrial and
commercial practices.
